E.A.T. An Unconventional Decade In The Life Of A Cancer Patient was written in journal format, and is based on the 18 journals Kathy kept during her battle with two rare and aggressive cancers. She refused to accept the prognosis of death and found herself tallying the limitations of conventional medical protocol, which led to Kathy’s conviction that neither cancer nor doctors would determine her fate. Despite taking advantage of everything her hospital had offered, Kathy’s body was failing, leaving her to live half dead.
Her story is an intimate portrait, chronicling the frustrations and hardships of taking on a harrowing battle within the context of our healthcare system while illuminating the path she traveled to self-advocate, evolve her thinking and transform her life from merely surviving to thriving. It’s a must read for anyone suffering from chronic disease, treating patients or simply looking for a more proactive approach to wellness.
Kathy Mydlach Bero’s remarkable recovery from two rare and aggressive forms of cancer, took her advocacy work into a whole new arena. She is a speaker, consultant, reiki master and integrative health and cancer coach, working to change the way we look at chronic disease.
Prior to her cancer diagnosis, Bero’s work ranged widely to include advocacy, facilitation, and consultation along with leadership development in the U.S and abroad. Bero has been recognized nationally for her significant contributions in environmental advocacy and education, and has executive produced the two-time Emmy award winning documentary WORTH FIGHTING FOR.
“When one door closes another will open, if you just turn the knob.” – Kathy Mydlach Bero
